Nikola Tesla-Nikola Tesla, a man who spoke 8 languages, possessed eidetic (photographic) memory, the great inventor and innovator, was indeed a Serb. Many things we use today were patented by Tesla, and we couldn’t possibly imagine living without them.Rumor has it that he had supposedly turned down a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1915.
Slivovitza-It’s a brandy, usually homemade, that families make in the villages across Serbia. Often recipes vary from family to family, and are transferred from generation to generation. Slivovitza is a very strong spirit, with more than 40% alcohol (ranging to 70% in some), and it’s famous for its strength even among the visitors from abroad.
Novak Djokovic-Currently, he is ranked as the world’s number 1 tennis players in men’s singles tennis. He had won 10 Grand Slam titles, and has held the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings for a total of 177 weeks.In Serbia, Djokovic is more than a person, more than an amazing tennis player.
Food-While we are talking about delicious food, which Serbia is definitely famous for, we can’t complete this list without mentioning something that is very mouthwatering, and native to Serbia’s southern area and Zlatibor mountain. We are talking about the komplet lepinja – an all-in-one flatbread bun with dairy spread of kajmak and gravy.
Splavs-If anything else, Serbs know how to have fun! Especially in Belgrade, there is a place for everybody, it’s a meeting point of various tastes. We will skip the regular clubs (although Serbia’s clubbing scene is massively developed), and we will focus on two typically traditional settings: splavs and kafanas.
